A break room scuffle over a gun at a Dayton, Ohio veteran’s hospital led to the shooting of a housekeeping employee, and the arrest of retired worker Monday, according to The Alliance Review.
 
The victim, 61-year-old Paul Burnside, was shot once in the ankle, according to reports. The suspect, Neil Moore, 59, was taken into custody after seeking psychiatric treatment at a different hospital a few miles away. Reports said Moore worked in housekeeping at the hospital for 27 years before retiring last October.
 
The paper reported that the shooting occurred during the lunch hour in the basement of the hospital's main building in the service and operations area. The incident caused a lockdown at the hospital as FBI agents searched the complex. Authorities also blocked roads leading to the hospital complex.
